The liberals bring out the long knives against Rice
Roger Cohen of the New York Times basically blasts Susan Rice. L-dotters suggest that Obama never intended to nominate her, but used her as a ploy so that Republicans would be happy with him for nominating Kerry instead. That seems unlikely. Some people are addicted to the view that every apparent screw-up by a political leader is really the manifestation of a deeply thought-out, deceptive plan. Thus the L-dotters insisted that every leftward move by their god George W. Bush was “really” part of an incredibly involved, Machiavellian strategy to advance conservatism.
Roger Cohen says in the New York Times:M. Jose writes:
I don’t think that this was the strategy, but if Obama is smart, he will wait until the last minute and then nominate someone else other than Rice - that way he can get the Republicans all upset over an issue and then pul it out from under them, thus draining resources from other fights.
